The Spanish reformer, Juan Perez (c.1500-1567), wrote this lengthy tract seeking to confirm and comfort protestants in the heart-breaking circumstances of living under the fear of the Spanish Inquisition. Perez comforts and encourages suffering Christians through the promises of God in the midst of their difficult circumstances, this being grounded in reformed theology.
This is the first translation of this work into English. Perez spent time in Geneva and also translated the New Testament and Psalms into Spanish.
“For there is no Jesus Christ without a cross, nor a true and blessed cross without Jesus Christ.”
